In 1857, Fauchery returned to Melbourne.  He established himself as a photographer in Collins Street, and soon embarked upon a collaboration with geologist, Richard Daintree. Together they produced a series of beautiful, high-quality images which today provide a rare and valuable record of life in Victoria in the late 1850s.
